We spent this weekend putting together special Valentines for Dallin and Mandy classes:
Layton even helped out a little too. Except he made all of his Valentine’s for himself ONLY.
Mandy had a blast decorating her sweet little box to put all her sweets in.
And of course, it isn’t truly Valentine’s Day without sugar cookies (at least not at our house :)). We made a ton of them for both Mandy’s class and Dallin’s class.
P.S. These are the best sugar cookies EVER! The secret: REAL butter and self-rising flour. They always turn out perfect and unlike many other sugar cookies they actually TASTE great!
2/3 cup salted butter, softenedCream butter and sugar. Stir in egg, vanilla, and milk. Fold in self rising flour. Do not over mix or the cookies will be cakey. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Generously flour a working surface and roll out the dough. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges begin to look slightly browned. Allow to cool and decorate! My favorite icing for decorating cookies is 1/2 cup butter, 1 box powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and then add water by the tablespoon until the icing is the desired consistency. Super easy!
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBSP milk
2 cups self rising flour
